"Unfortunately, deliveries contracted by the European Union are very small in relation to the capacity we have created," Michal Dworczyk, the head of the prime minister’s office, told Polish Radio One in reaction to a report published in the newspaper Dziennik Gazeta Prawna on Tuesday, which claimed it would not be possible to quickly vaccinate senior citizens and teachers due to insufficient vaccine supplies.
He added that "we have a much greater technical capacity to carry out vaccinations than the current availability of vaccines on the market.”
"The system we have been building up for weeks enables us to vaccinate up to four million doses a month, but the deliveries we can count on at the moment are for about 360,000 doses a week, which gives us 1,400,000 vaccinations a month," Dworczyk explained. (PAP)
